All sales of new light-duty passenger vehicles in California must be ZEVs by 2035. ZEVs include battery-electric and fuel cell electric vehicles. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) will develop regulations related to in-state sales of new light-duty cars and trucks. CARB will also work with state agencies to develop a ZEV Market Development Strategy (Strategy) to support these regulations and assess statewide ZEV infrastructure by January 31, 2021. The Strategy will be updated triennially. (Reference Executive Order N-79-20)
